Drake Bell gets 96-hour jail sentence for second DUI conviction: reports
Drake Bell was sentenced to serve 96 hours in jail and was placed on four years probation for his second DUI conviction on Friday, according to several reports.
The former Nickelodeon star, 30, reportedly accepted a plea deal and received four days in Los Angeles County Jail, according to TMZ. This sentencing comes after his 2015 DUI arrest, which occurred after the actor was pulled over at 2:18 a.m. by Glendale police for straddling a lane, traveling at an unsafe speed and abruptly stopping at a red light.
Officers “smelled an odor of alcohol” and administered a sobriety test, which Bell “did not satisfactorily complete,” Tahnee Lightfoot, a Glendale Police spokeswoman, told PEOPLE last year.
Bell was arrested and later released with a citation after posting $20,000 in bail. But because he was also arrested for a DUI charge in San Diego in 2009, California state law demands that a second conviction within a 10-year time span requires a minimum sentence of four days in county jail, according to E!.
The Glendale police said they wouldn’t be able to respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment until after Labor Day. Bell’s rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
